Slain woman's parents drop wrongful death suit

The parents of a southern Indiana woman slain alongside her two children in 2000 have dropped a wrongful death lawsuit against their son-in-law, who was acquitted last year in the killings.

But Frank and Janice Renn's attorney, Amy Wheatley, says her clients aren't giving up on efforts to keep David Camm from profiting from his family's deaths.

Wheatley tells The Courier-Journal that dropping the Floyd Circuit Court lawsuit was "all about streamlining and focusing" on the remaining pending cases against Camm to deny him control of his family's estates or Kim Camm's insurance policy.

Camm attorney David Mosley tells the News and Tribune that Janice Renn received $200,000 from that policy in 2002 because David Camm respected his late wife's wishes that those funds be awarded to her mother.
